Safe Sleep for Infants and SEA Change Finalists

Featured Audio

Efforts to reduce Northeast Ohio's alarmingly high rate of infant moratily continue. On The Sound of Ideas, our Be Well Health team will lead us in a deeper look at one area where lives can be saved: safe sleep practices. We'll talk to a mom who lost her son while they slept in the same bed, and we'll discuss developing research that says sleeping on the stomach is worse for some babies than others. Later, big ideas for businesses that benefit society.
